Hi matchiz, I unfortunately don't know what is causing it.. . I am on Windows only, maybe wait for mahutis layout or maybe the other Damon-HP can help....sorry...


Had some time this weekend and got rid of the left/right of the Cabinets...looks good enough for me haha (mistakes were made ...might redo/touch up some....later)

...BUT there is now a new Problem with the smaller cabinets like Vewlix...the marquees are too wide and over the edges!

I plan to solve this like this:
a) Photoshop the marquee in the actual cabinet art (most cabinets with unusual shape have it already)
b) and make a transparent/clear marquee with "nothing" for the marquee folder (need this to avoid triggering the no marquee MAME/FB Neo default marque - which is again to wide)

All 1000+ Cabinets without WALL and Shadow Sidekick....for everyone who wants ...

Boardwalk used the unified bezels. Man that would be cool to add to this. I got into the code this weekend. Lots of options!!

I started working with my auto scaling code. I noticed it did some weird stuff on vertical so I'm trying to fix that before I try integrating it.

Do you have this up on github?

Hello mahuti,
...no github, sorry...
...would be cool to have a tailored layout for the cabinets with bezel, marquee, flyer, infos...eeeeveeerrrrythinggg haha...
...for know I am happy with this...maybe adding the flyerart later to the right and a brickwall-background so the flyer looks like an actual poster on the wall..had it before for robospin..
...but I think the wheel covers to much of the flyer because this time we have a frontal look at the cabinet, maybe I move the wheel down, a upperhalfwheel in the downright corner?...hmm

Thank you for the Standard Cabinet PSD
...with all the layers it is a real -=[Cabinet-Construction-Kit]=-  ;)...
...can you post when you have a final version, please? would wait to maybe add something for myself...
...I like the layer over the marquee I used in the first version of my new black default cabinet in the last download...the marquee looks more milkglassy?backlit?...I like it...
...I think some color was missing for me was black, yellow, red, blue a layeroption? - ahh, the front of the panel needed different color too I think...
...and I would add layer for some control panel, wheel, flight etc.. there are matching ones for this type of cabinet...
This will make it very easy to make some new cabs, the only thing to do manually is to add some game artwork to the cabinet...thanx

Another thing I have to look into is marquees for some big games (for me;) which are missing, I recognized this just recently, what...no marquee for xxxxxxx??? whhhhyyyy?
....I have the complete progettosnaps-marquee-pack, I think it is relatively complete or have I missed another source...maybe some are for clones, I have no clone filter....
...when I have the time...

Oh, Hi other Damon-HP, screenshot looking good, TURTLEPOWER!, best ARCADE haha

In my layouts, I usually make the wheel optional. Personally, I don't really see the appeal of the wheel graphics, especially when you already have a cabinet, marquee, etc. If the wheel takes away something cool like what you're talking about, make it so the user can turn if off.

1. I'll look at adding it. I didn't notice.

I think some color was missing for me was black, yellow, red, blue a layeroption?

2. I only made a few colors as examples. I started building it so that I could dynamically change the colors using hex or RGB values. I did this before with my layouts so I only needed 1 graphic. If you want to use the t-molding in static graphics, you'd need to add the colors. But that shouldn't be hard... I think it's just a full layer of colors. When I'm back in the file, I'll go ahead and add some more colors though

3. I made a layer for that too. I believe it's in the file.

...and I would add layer for some control panel, wheel, flight etc.. there are matching ones for this type of cabinet...

4. Those things should be a drop-in for the most part. I can add some examples to show you.

I think at some point I switched to using Emumovies marquees. Takes awhile to download them all if you want to do it for free. Years ago I bought a lifetime account there though so it's not much effort for me.  ;D

...can you post when you have a final version, please?

5. What else would you like me to add, other than the items above?

Helloooo,

Can't think of of anything to add...would be nice if you post the psd, when you think it's ready, it's already great as it is...;)

Had to move the marquee in the layout a few pixel, because the background was showing through. (layout attached)

I have made clear/transparent marquees for the special cabinet which won't cover the marquee (attached 155).
I copied them into the marquee folder - but I advise to better not overwrite (I use total commander and can choose auto rename target file, so I keep the original ones) 

Thinking what to do with the playchoice and megatech cabinets which have a small transparent window for the marquee
(put in cabinetart/make small square normal ones for games or one default? decisions :o)
